Champagne is definitely always top of my list. It stands above cocktails. Sometimes. That is of course unless the Sofitel Soiree invitation said “Party Like It’s 1969″. On this red carpet occasion I got to indulge in both. My only regret? I didn’t wear a beehive and long white gloves. But I did drink (can you guess?) an elegant Emma Peel (well a couple of them – you know me) and a Manhattan as well as watching the Taittenger Champagne fountain spring in action. And while the rest of the too cool crowd nestled their drinks and ate cool 60s canapes like curried eggs and pate on toast with gherkins, I swayed on the spot to the cool 60s lounge music that gently soothed us in the background. Can’t wait to go back and take a better look at the new Soiree 60s inspired bar design and cocktail list.
